NYSC to deploy screening machines to orientation camps
The Director-General of the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) Brig.-Gen. Johnson Bamidele Olawumi has said he may deploy screening machines to orientation camps, if the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) continues to spread.
This, he said, would enable the NYSC to detect the health status of corps members and prevent the spread of the EVD among the corps members during their stay in the camps.
Olawumi spoke in Akure, the Ondo State capital, at the beginning of the NYSC/State Governments’ Collaboration on Monthly Environmental Sanitation.
The NYSC chief said the scheme had integrated the camps’ clinics into the states’ plan to combat the spread of the EVD.
He urged Nigerians to always maintain clean environment and personal hygiene.
Olawumi said relevant government agencies should work together to curtail the spread of the disease, which has killed over 1,000 in West Africa.
